The winner and runner up in each nation will be chosen by a panel of judges. This year's People's Choice Award closed on Wednesday 23 March having received well over 11,000 votes with Strike a Chord emerging as the public's favourite. They'll receive their award at the Epic Awards ceremony in Cardiff on Saturday 2 April along with the other winners.
